"Prime Time America" - Radio. Paul Butler, an assistant professor of communications and a radio personality with the Moody Broadcasting Network, owns a set of Balancing the Sword books. Mr. Butler was putting together a short audio piece on the discipleship of children. Paul combined my remarks with those previously made by Dr. John Walton of Wheaton College. It was an honor. The 7:29-minute clip aired on Moody Radio's nationally syndicated "Prime Time America" on 14 August 2008. Click here to listen. On 15 August 2008, I contributed comments on the role of grandparents in the discipleship of their grandchildren. Click here to listen. (3:55 minutes)

Generations with Vision. On August 3, 2009, I was honored to be have a brief segment with Kevin Swanson on Generations Radio. The topic was the supremacy of the knowledge of God, teaching the technical knowledge of the Bible, and finding places of application. Paul said to the Ephesians, “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God” (Ac. 20:27). Deuteronomy 6:7 and 11:19 tell us that the teaching of Scripture to our children must be so fluid that we can teach information and application in all the organic settings of life. Success is not found in training children in the facts of the Bible alone. Information is half the formula. Finding appropriate applications makes our efforts complete. Generations Radio airs on GenerationsWithVision, OnePlace.com, SermonAudio.com, and locally in Colorado. The first half of the program is between Kevin Swanson and his co-host; the second half is between Kevin and myself.
Letter from a Military Wife and Mother
Praise the Lord for our godly men who faithfully serve and guide their families while also fulfilling the noble obligations of providing our national security. Would to God that we could motivate every dad who currently has discretionary time available with his family every night to lead in family-based Bible studies as Dani's husband is willing to do from the other side of the planet. I've never met this man, but my hat goes off to Dani's husband!
